What is a Modular Home?

Modular HomeThe Modular Home

Modular homes and buildings are constructed out of many assembled cubicles, called modular sections or modular boxes. These modular sections are constructed off-site, transported to the building parcel, and built into a finished home. As our video shows, the everyday house or commercial building can be constructed by simply stacking and manipulating modular sections. Instead of building these sections on land, the sections are built in a state-of-the-art factory and transported to the property.

This latest and exciting development is sweeping over the world, and a large number of people are making eco-friendly, sustainable folding container houses. In case you are searching for an innovative and thrilling place to live, that is not only affordable but lets you arrange, optimize, and build a housing solution you’ve been dreaming of. Folding container houses are the best option available.

It is great to see that nowadays people are becoming gradually more concerned about nature. People are making an intensive effort to take care of our planet as they become more environmentally conscious.

One of the key ways in which a lot of people attempt and decrease their carbon footprint is through recycling. There are lots of wastage that we can recycle, from glass and metals to paper and plastics. Reusing the humble shipping container is one of them. lots of people are doing that and recycling them into creative and great-looking folding container houses

Modular Home vs. Site-Built Properties

The framing, roofing, plumbing, cabinetry, interior finish, heating, air conditioning, and electric wiring are exactly what you would expect in a conventional site-built property. The significant difference is the location of construction. As its name suggests, site-built properties are built right on-site, exposing the material to inclement weather, vandalism, and other adverse conditions. In contrast, modular properties are constructed in climate-controlled facilities, which protects the materials from degradation.  The homes are then transported from the facility to the site, which requires modular companies to implement several different reinforcement measures (such as gluing and screwing of building material) to ensure sturdiness during travel.  Moreover, modular companies must comply with interstate building codes thereby resulting in stronger, higher-quality properties.

The costs for modular construction are also lower than site-built construction for two main reasons: (1) building material is purchased in bulk and (2) construction is handled in an efficient, assembly-like manner. This translates into an average 20% savings for modular built properties.

Modular homes and commercial buildings can also be constructed in as little as 12 weeks.  This is because modular homes are built indoors using full-time indoor crews. Therefore, modular companies do not suffer the downsides of subcontractor no shows, bad weather, and other common time concerns.

the-tam-thumb-side-150x150The Future of Modular Home

Modular construction is truly the future of the building. Currently, all construction sites whether residential or commercial use pre-fabricated components. These components include pre-hung doors, roof trusses, interior moldings, drywall, kitchen, and bath cabinets, windows, heat sources, roof shingles, siding, fireplaces, flooring, and even room-by-room units. The only distinction is how much actual work will be done at the site.

Pre-constructed homes have actually been fabricated in the United States since the 1880s. Several progressive builders began to improve upon this process around the mid-to-late twentieth century and continued to enhance the craft until there was no recognizable difference between site-built and modular properties.

Despite the overt benefits described above, many conventional companies are reluctant to learn and invest in alternative building methods because the savings would predominantly benefit the customer. If such companies do not know how to build modular homes, they will not inform customers about the inherent benefits. This has left an opportunity for seasoned builders to learn and hone the craft and show customers why modular construction is superior in design, build, and efficiency. Modular construction is now 25% of the building industry and continuously growing as consumers become more familiar with its benefits.

Weathering the Storm: Modular Homes Are Built to Last

modular homesModular homes

Modular homes have proven to be structurally superior to their stick-built counterparts. Modular structures can survive some of the most inclement weather, including hurricanes, tornadoes, tropical storms, etc. Here is an excerpt from the FEMA Building Performance Report based on observations during and after Hurricane Andrew.

Modular homes are experiencing a significant expansion of public interest and corporate investment. This segment of the construction industry seeks to improve safety, productivity, cost, quality, and sustainability performance to pace with customer demands. It is continuing to face workforce shortages, cost vulnerabilities, and other difficulties, so modular homes are a great solution to alleviate shortcomings.

Container prefab homes are also known as folding container houses. Most of its parts, like doors, rooftops, toilets, stairs, and closets, are constructed in a factory before being shipped to a building site in pieces. They’re then assembled very quickly on the site.

The idea of container home prefab has been around for a while. From beginning as container homes to expanding to modular, pre-assembled, and panelized housing, modern modular homes have come a long way. With container prefab homes, building development has become quicker and more cost-effective, with an attractive craftsmanship quality.

Container home prefabs are well known with the eco-friendly group because of their natural advantages – however, those aren’t the main points of interest of living in a folding container house. In many nations, the construction of modular homes shows high innovation-esteem, which is better than the conventional ones. The commercial market’s advancement of container home prefab has been acknowledged globally, both by the makers and buyers these days.

  • As modular homes are created, home manufacturers can measure how much material is required for construction, creating less waste.
  • The additional materials used to build the walls of a prefab home make the home sturdier.
  • Modular homes can be built in less time. Instead of waiting for the deconstruction of the former buildings and laying the foundation before building, a folding container house can be made in the factory during site prep time.
  • Prefab homes containers are additionally better for nature because fewer materials are used in development while it disturbs the environment less than the conventional constructions.
  • In traditional construction, materials are subjected to rain and snow, which impacts the project’s time and costs—less stress for everyone on the team and the customer.
  • Container prefab homes are resistant to form, fire, and termites.
  • Materials age well and require little upkeep.
  • Low Structural Cost and High Strength.

Overall, relatively minimal structural damage was noted in modular housing developments. The module-to-module combination of the units appears to have provided an inherently rigid system that performed much better than conventional residential framing. This was evident in both the transverse and longitudinal directions of the modular homes.

…Connection of units provides inherent reinforcement to overall construction with doubled members.

…Short span of rafters contributes to increased overall structural stiffness.

…Structural integrity of individual units (necessary to resist lifting and transportation forces) ensures sound components for systems of connected units.

Adequate and affordable housing is the most crucial challenge in both rising and developed countries. With a growing urgency for addressing climate change and other ecological issues, these homes will also undergo strict sustainability requirements. Prefab container home construction can offer great opportunities for both environmental and economic returns, making it an attractive substitute for traditional construction. It has been viewed as a decisive and beneficial construction method strategy in an industry searching for improving costs, quality, and productivity.

Today, homeowners are searching for modern, chic, exclusive, greener, cheaper, and smarter homes that are more durable and more energy-efficient than their predecessors. In an industry that demands new construction methods, this exciting prefab industry seemingly provides benefits across the board in all vital construction principles. As technology and innovation improve construction methodologies, prefab container homes will undoubtedly be there for decades to come.
